About to graduate from Oxford, 21-year-old Shannon is already tipped to become the next big thing in sci-fi and fantasy. Serkis, who's picked up the rights through his Imaginarium production outfit, calls the novel “truly, extraordinary and thrilling”.
Set in 2059, it follows the life of 19-year-old Paige Maloney who works in the criminal underworld of Scion London. Her job is to scout information by breaking into people’s minds. She is a dreamwalker, a clairvoyant. In her world, she commits treason simply by breathing.
Her life quickly changes when she is kidnapped and taken to Oxford – a city kept secret for two hundred years and controlled by an otherworldly race. Assigned a Warden, Paige must allow herself to be nurtured if she is to survive this prison.
